Allarme da Bioinitiative Group: le evidenze scientifiche su danni tumorali aumentano sempre più

Dalla lettura degli studi pubblicati dal 2012 al 2014 si ha un'evidenza sempre maggiore del rischio di tumori (glioma) e neuroma con l'uso di telefoni cellulari e cordless. E' quanto sottonea Prof. Lennart Hardell . I livelli di esposizione limite proposti tanti anni fa da ICNIRP sono inadeguati.

Qui c'è una intervista a Olle Johansson, con sottotitoli in inglese e spagnolo.

The BioInitiative Working Group says evidence for health risk from wireless
tech is growing stronger and warrants immediate action. The Group released
a mid-year update covering new science studies from 2012 to 2014.

New studies intensify medical concerns about malignant brain tumors from
cell phone use. “There is a consistent pattern of increased risk for glioma
(a malignant brain tumor) and acoustic neuroma with use of mobile and
cordless phones” says Lennart Hardell, MD, PhD at Orebro University,
Sweden, according to studies released in 2012 and 2013. “Epidemiological
evidence shows that radiofrequency should be classified as a known human
carcinogen. The existing FCC/IEEE and ICNIRP public safety limits are not
adequate to protect public health.”

The BioInitiative reports nervous system effects in 68% of studies on
radiofrequency radiation (144 of 211 studies) in 2014. This has increased
from 63% in 2012 (93 of 150 studies) in 2012. Studies of extremely-low
frequency radiation are reported to cause nervous system effects in 90% of
the 105 studies available in 2014. Genetic effects (damage to DNA) from
radiofrequency radiation is reported in 65% (74 of 114 studies); and 83%
(49 of 59 studies) of extremely-low frequency studies.

Mobile wireless devices like phones and tablets are big sources of
unnecessary biological stress to the mind and body that can chip away at
resilience over time. The Report warns against wireless in schools. Schools
should provide internet access without Wi-Fi.

"It is essentially an unregulated experiment on children's health and
learning. Microwave from wireless tech disrupts thinking – what could be
worse for learning? Technology can be used more safely with wired devices
that do not produce these biologically-disruptive levels of microwave
radiation" said Cindy Sage, Co-Editor of the BioInitiative Report.

Federal programs like
E-Rate are calling for wireless classrooms while ignoring the health
evidence. Hyperactivity, concentration problems, anxiety, irritability,
disorientation, distracted behavior, sleep disorders, and headaches are
reported in clinical studies.

Government reviews on health impacts of wireless radiofrequency radiation
from the European Union and Australia continue to be inconclusive largely
because they require certainty before issuing warnings. The FCC review of
health impacts from wireless technologies is still underway, but has not
affected the federal push for wireless classrooms.

  1. Grazie a ricercatori come Hardell e collaboratori viene tenuto caldo il batttente sulla necessità di rivedere la classificazione IARC.
    Dispute scientifiche avvengono dove dovuto: nelle riviste.
    ci sono due pagine molto interesssanti per capire come le valutazioni finali passano attraverso la selettività di quali ricerche e confronti fatti da una parte e dall'altra ...
